Glenn Beck – The Argument Against Idiots: Separation of Church and State

December 15, 2008

Hey church goers.  Ever wonder why your pastor doesn’t speak from the pulpit about issues of the day . . . like the issues swilling around the 2008 Presidential candidates.  Read and weep.  The go further to see Glenn Beck’s responses.

11/25/08 update   There is a group in California which wants to take the Mormon Church to Court for their involvement in Amendment #8 Marriage is a Man and a Woman victory. 

The inquisition is here again.  Don’t just watch.  The next thing they will be doing is walling ‘Religious’ communities off from the rest of society.  Sound familiar.

 

The issue: ‘Separation of Church and State’ What the liberal whiners say: Thank GOODNESS for the Reverend Barry Lynn and Americans United for Separation of Church and State calling for the IRS to investigate that Catholic Bishop Arthur Serratelli, for jumping into this Presidential race…there is NO place for that in American politics…he needs to have his 501c status revoked!’ ‘Just as the Rev. Barry Lynn said: ‘it’s a HIDDEN AGENDA to sway votes!’ ‘Why do you hate CIVIL LIBERTIES…which is what the "C" and "L" in ACLU stand for…and why do you hate the U.S. Constitution? Like it or not religious zealots, there is a Constitutional separation of church and state in this country!

I couldn’t stand the suspense.  Here are Glenn’s suggested responses to such fear mongering.

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. You’re talking about the statement Bishop Serratelli made that the democratic candidate promised, as his FIRST act as president, to sign the pro-abortion, Freedom of Choice Act? He didn’t even name the candidate, and he didn’t endorse anyone…he was talking about a MORAL issue…that’s what Bishops DO!
2. Oh, I guess you prefer the much more OPEN agenda of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Phlegar…both of whomunabashadly called for Barack Obama to be elected…from their PULPITS! And by the way, please stop calling Barry Lynn a REVEREND. He’s a phony, former ACLU attorney, who only goes after conservative, white Christians. I didn’t see him sick the IRS on Jeremiah Wright and Father Phlegar, did you?
3. No there isn’t. There IS a Constitutional PROTECTION of religion in this country, that gives that Bishop the right to say what he did. But let me share the "establishment clause" of the 1st Amendment with you, since you’ve obviously never read it: Oh what the heck, I’ll share the whole thing so you won’t be able to say that I took it out of context. Here it is:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. No mention of a "separation of church and state". That came in an 1803 letter from Thomas Jefferson to a Baptist minister to assure him that the United States would never declare a state religion.
